Patriotic Table and Mini-Party

Monday, June 27, 2016

Happy Monday, friends! Although it's officially a week away, I got the bug this weekend to throw together a patriotic table and mini-party for the holiday!  Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays and a great reminder of how lucky I am to live in this country. There is nothing I love more than laying out on a picnic blanket, surrounded by my family and a throng of friends, gazing up at the fireworks, all of us united by our feelings of patriotism. The lights, the sounds, the songs.. gets me every time!

Front Porch Reveal - Curb Appeal Challenge 2016

A quick recap: We've spent the past five weeks transforming the front porch of my home. I'm not the only one! Together with the lovely Deb at Seeking Lavender Lane and a group of fun and talented bloggers, we've all had a fantastic time bringing you our favorite curb appeal ideas and projects and today is the reveal! To add to the fun, we're also hosting a giveaway for a $110 Home Depot/Home Decorators gift card to get you started on curb appeal for your home! Details on the giveaway and links to my fellow curb appealers reveals can be found at the bottom of this post. 

For now, let's take a walk down memory lane at where we began.
